Cloudian partners with WEKA to deliver high performance,

SAN MATEO, Calif., Jan. 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Cloudian® today announced the integration of its HyperStore® object storage with the WEKA Data Platform for AI, providing cloud storage Exabyte-scalable, high-performance private server for processing iterative analytical workloads. The combined solution unifies and simplifies the data pipeline for performance-intensive workloads and accelerated DataOps, all easily managed under a single namespace. In addition, the new solution reduces the storage TCO associated with data analysis by a third, compared to traditional storage systems.

Advanced Analytics Workloads Create Data Storage Challenges
Organizations are consuming and creating more data than ever before, and many are applying AI, machine learning (ML), and other advanced analytics on these big datasets to make better real-time decisions and unlock new insights. sources of income. These analytics workloads create and use large datasets that pose significant storage challenges, including the ability to handle data growth and allow users to extract timely insights from that data. Traditional storage systems simply cannot handle the processing needs or scalability required for iterative analytics workloads and introduce bottlenecks to productivity and data-driven decision making.

Next Generation Cloudian-WEKA Storage Platform
Together, Cloudian and WEKA enable organizations to overcome the challenges of accelerating and scaling their data pipelines while reducing data analytics storage costs. WEKA’s data platform, based on WekaFS, addresses the storage challenges posed by today’s enterprise AI workloads and other high-performance applications running on-premises, in the cloud or burst between platforms. The joint solution offers the simplicity of NAS, the performance of SAN or DAS, and the scale of object storage, while accelerating every step of the data pipeline, from data ingestion to cleanup to modeled results .

Integrated through WEKA’s tiering feature, Cloudian’s enterprise-grade software-defined object storage offers the following key benefits:

  • High performance – Run concurrent workloads while eliminating compute cluster bottlenecks and reducing processing times.
  • Exabyte Scalability – Scale on-demand deployments from terabytes to exabytes non-disruptively, achieving the flexibility and elasticity of public cloud in a private data center or hybrid cloud model.
  • Enterprise-grade security – Protect data with in-flight and at-rest encryption, built-in firewall, RBAC/IAM and SAML access controls, and certification with the most stringent regulatory requirements, such as Common Criteria, FIPS, and Rule SEC 17a-4(f).
  • Elasticity – Achieve high data durability with the ability to protect and distribute data using replication or erasure coding, eliminating the need for a separate data backup process.
  • Multiple rentals – Provision multiple users on a shared infrastructure without compromising security.
  • Profitable – Save on storage costs, as the solution runs on standard x86 hardware with local NVMe SSDs.

“As organizations increasingly use AI, ML, and other advanced analytics to extract greater value from their data, they need a modern storage platform that enables processing and quick and easy data management,” said Jonathan Martin, President of WEKA. “The combination of the WEKA data platform and cloud object storage provides an ideal solution that can scale seamlessly and cost-effectively to meet growing demands.”

“When it comes to supporting advanced analytics applications, users shouldn’t have to compromise between performance and storage capacity,” said Jon Toor, CMO of Cloudian. “Eliminating any need for compromise, the integration of our HyperStore software with the WEKA data platform provides customers with a storage foundation that allows them to take full advantage of these applications so they can gain new insights at from their data and drive greater business and operational success.”
